Domaine Paul Pillot was founded in 1900 by Jean-Baptiste Pillot, a barrel maker by trade, who decided to focus full-time on his vines. His sons, Alphonse and Henri, succeeded him after the conclusion of World War I. Henri’s son Paul then took over the Domaine in 1968, and acquiring some prestigious Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru vineyards. Today, the domaine owns 13 hectares of vines (4.5 in red) and is run by Paul’s dynamic son Thierry who began working in 1999, before taking over full time in 2004. Under Thierry the focus has been put squarely in the vineyards, with a discreet use of new wood and a non-interventionist approach in the cellar. 'Les Caillerets' is sourced from a 0.4 ha parcel from 60+ years old vines. Fermented in 10% new oak for 12 months, plus 6 months in tank.
